Tutorial: Carte Postale Frame

Stamps, ink, and cardstock are fo rso much more than just cards! See how Giovana created this lovely frame in her tutorial below.

Crafter's Companion US supplies:


Step 1: Gather all your materials and get ready to stamp.

Step 2: Stamp "Carte Postale" image on a piece of Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock in Versamark Watermark ink.

Step 3: Cover image with Light Blue Embossing Powder and heat set.

Step 4: Apply a smooth coat of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

Step 5: Apply a second coat using Broken China Distress Ink.

Step 6: Finally apply Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Step 7: Your piece now looks like this, you can apply as little or as much ink as you want. TIP: I leave the stamped area a little bit lighter of Vintage Photo Ink.

Step 8: Stamp the border around the edges in Blue Hawaii StazOn and the other two images in Spiced Chai StazOn Midi Ink.

TIP: You can use this piece in a card, but also you can decorate your room with beautiful frame. I got this pretty frame at my local Goodwill for only 0.99 cents!!
